    Yeah, you'd have to pick and choose which games to go to. Was looking at the ticket prices and pretty expensive. Thing is it is a big stadium and they can lower the prices to get more people in... but they don't.
    The way our owners see it is that 25,000 at price X will work out to a higher gate receipt than price Y (maths isn't brilliant so someone can work out the figures), but it's not all about that. Usually get down to Elland Road 4 or 5 times a season and if 30,000+ get in its electric.

    This is the argument Leeds fans have. We've averaged around a 60% full stadium this season, if they just lower the price, get a fuller stadium, better atmosphere effects the players, better performances leading to an even larger attendance. Plus you'd have the extra fans buying merchandise, food & drink & programs.

    Even more annoyingly, the stadium doors don't open until an hour before kick off, so there's thousands of fans just wandering around the stadium & club shop.

    This is a clear example of a Wenger fan rather than an Arsenal fan.

    I cant differentiate between the two.

    It's funny because Sir Alex did more for United than Wenger has done for The Arsenal (taking us from an, albeit underachieving, mid-table side to arguably the 2nd biggest club in the world as opposed to Wenger who took you up maybe 2 levels at a max), yet he is not immune to criticism. Despite the laughing stock we have become he's not infallible, our fans regularly pour blame on him. Unjustifiably? I think so. But nobody is bigger than the club and it's laughable to hear people they'd support a Wenger side over Arsenal :laugh:

    Ive been to Elland Road actually and have to say the atmosphere was very good(although there was a high percentage of scum from what I say so swings and roundabouts). Leeds/Arsenal games back in the day at Highbury were genuinely pretty good atmospheres too from what i remember. Ian Harte scored a late free kick once against us that was extremely controversial because he took it early and then the famous 3-2 loss in 2003. You were somewhat of a bogey team for us

    Leeds is probably the best city in the North all things considered although I'd probably live in Newcastle over anywhere given a choice.

    Tongue firmly in cheek. But I'd support whichever team he went to as a 2nd for sure.

    Wrt SAF, he never sacrificed his own career for Utd whereas Wenger did. He's have collected La Liga and BuLi titles and perhaps a CL elsewhere had he taken some of his chances but he instead stuck around trying to find a way to get Denilson, Bendtner, Almunia, Djourou and Silvestre into the CL. Also believe AW would never leave a poisoned chalice to the new man like SAF did, horrible egomaniac that he is.

    You'll be fine this weekend. I do think you need to give Sanchez a rest, but Wenger's usually quite good at squad management so I'm sure he'll do it soon. It's a shame you've got so many injuries this season. Especially for Oxlade-Chamberlain, because Townsend wouldn't have got the England nod had he been fit and raring to go without that injury at Old Trafford.

    Don't think we were gonna get two RM cast-offs in a row. Alexis, Ozil and ADM was never possible really, besides we couldn't afford all 3 in 2 seasons.

    Di Maria went for £60m FFS, we cant afford that. Nor is he even worth that.
